Alex Canovas / Artistic Director


The Young New Yorkers’ Chorus (YNYC) is a home to choral singers in their 20s and 30s who yearn for both a fun, social atmosphere as well as superior artistic experiences. The Mixed Ensemble and Women’s Ensemble each perform 2-3 concerts per year, and also engage in social events throughout the season. The Mixed Ensemble rehearses on Tuesday evenings, and the Women’s Ensemble on Wednesday evenings. YNYC operates from September through early June.


YNYC is very excited to announce that auditions for our upcoming season will be held at the end of August 2018 – our pre-audition form is now live!

If you are interested in joining YNYC, please fill out and submit the audition form no later than 11:59pm Sunday, August 12, 2018. If we are able to arrange an audition time for you, we will be in contact the week of August 13th.

Those chosen for an in-person audition will be asked to present 16 bars (approximately 1 minute) of a song of their choice (either a cappella or with accompaniment), and will be assessed further on their skill level through vocalizing, musicianship exercises, and sight-reading. YNYC has members of many different levels of musicianship, so don’t be nervous about auditioning – we are looking forward to meeting potential new members and will make the audition process fun and as stress-free as possible!

If you have any questions regarding the audition process, please contact us at We look forward to hearing from you – thank you for your interest in joining the Young New Yorkers’ Chorus family!
